"We should read to give our souls a chance to luxuriate."
A heavy snowstorm that makes impossible for a doctor to come, and for Jason to bring Noah in the hospital.
An older sexy partner who rejects to give Noah any information about ANYTHING, because he follows the recommendations of the doctor, whom he contacts regularly via telephone, not to give too much away, and let the patient to remember everything on his own.
Noah, who starts to be suspicious. (Who won't?)
Jason who is overprotected and head over heels in love with Noah. The last one is difficult to oversee.
The writing. I find it not good enough for giving this novel more stars.
The main characters. I have to admit, I wanted to know how their story would end, but I didn't really care about them. I think, it was the writing that didn't let me get closer to them. I didn't buy Jason's obsession with Noah. And I found the second characters also flat and boring.
One more reason for my rating: I'm not going to read more of this series. I am not interested in the persons that will appear in the next sequels. Maybe I'll try something else by this author in the future, but I'm not sure.
All in all: An interesting amnesia version, a sweet love tale, with a touching HEA, for all readers whose favorite genre is a Contemporary MM Romance.

* The first time in his life his parents got him a hotel room over Christmas. There is just not enough place in the house for all family members who is coming this year for Christmas.
* He meets Jordan who works in the music store where Bryan jobbed during his high school years.
And a hotel room then happens to be not that bad idea.
The main characters. On the one side Wade – beautiful and sexy as God and criminal as HELL. Jericho, an exemplary officer of the law, incorruptible, uncompromising, unblemished on the other side. And between them – their past, their memories, many unanswered questions and a LOT OF SEXUAL TENSION.
Wade and Jericho are so DIFFERENT. Like night and day, like winter and summer, like ocean and desert. Like Wade and Jericho. They can be together probably ONLY if one of them decides to change the side. BUT is it possible at all?! And if YES, then WHO?! AND HOW?!
Wade is such a smart bad ass. It is fun to watch him playing games with Jericho. Don’t underestimate him, he is full of HIDDEN surprises.
A deliciously s-l-o-w b-u-r-n. The book one- a KISS, the book two – a BJ. We are one step further. But we have not yet reached our destination.
"Do you want to stop by my place after dinner to light candles together?"
...because there were shimmery garlands draped everywhere, the rodeo clowns were all dressed as Santa, and even some of the horses had candy canes and snowflakes painted on their rumps.
«Whatever teaches us to talk to ourselves is important: whatever teaches us to sing ourselves out of despair. But the painting has also taught me that we can speak to each other across time. And I feel I have something very serious and urgent to say to you, my non-existent reader, and I feel I should say it as urgently as if I were standing in the room with you. That life—whatever else it is—is short. That fate is cruel but maybe not random. That Nature (meaning Death) always wins but that doesn’t mean we have to bow and grovel to it. That maybe even if we’re not always so glad to be here, it’s our task to immerse ourselves anyway: wade straight through it, right through the cesspool, while keeping eyes and hearts open. And in the midst of our dying, as we rise from the organic and sink back ignominiously into the organic, it is a glory and a privilege to love what Death doesn’t touch. For if disaster and oblivion have followed this painting down through time—so too has love. »
...his mother hadn't died in the explosion
...he hadn't put this bird into his bag
...he hadn't met Hobbie
...his father hadn't
brought him to Las Vegas and hadn't died in the car accident (or was it a suicide?) later
...many many tiny and significant IFS...
But the biggest, the most important, the most fateful IF-
...IF HE HADN'T MET BORIS?
